The researcher could find very little out about Henry but the following article appeared in a local newspaper:
“The Campaign in the Balkans
Mrs Mant, of the Queen’s Head, Bexhill, has received the sad intelligence that her husband, Private Henry George Mant, Royal Sussex Regiment, was killed in action on the 12th-13th April at Vimy Ridge. Private Mant’s home was at Littlehampton but he was well-known at Bexhill, and he joined up with the Southdown’s at Cooden. He was wounded last June. He went out to France for a second time just before Christmas.”
Henry was killed on Friday, 13th April 1914, in an action that claimed 300 lives. No record of his medals awarded can be found.
